Antisemitism continues to rise at an alarming rate according to the ADL Audit of Antisemitic Incidents 2021. From verbal assaults to violent attacks, the ADL has tracked 2,717 antisemitic incidents throughout the United States. This 34% increase culminated with the Gaza-Israel conflict last May and has steadily increased throughout the year.
The State of New Jersey showed a third-year rise in antisemitic incidents with Southern New Jersey having an increase of 36%. ADL acknowledges that the reporting of incidents has certainly increased which adds to the significant growth.
